Technicolor Tuesday

For previous Technicolor Tuesday posts, click here.
This photo was taken at the Balsams Resort many years ago.  The grounds were landscaped beautifully and this little gazebo with a red roof was always a favorite spot for us to go.  The colors in this palette are "ice cream colors".  Each of the shades can be named a different flavor, strawberry, blackberry, French Vanilla.  The colors are classic for a children's room. 

The second color palette is more sophisticated, more adult.  The colors are no longer soft, but brilliant in their own right and also inspired by nature.  The icy blue of the sky, the various green from the bushes and the deeper red from the shadows on the roof all make for an adult version of the first color scheme.
